In another thread I see some people think they are somehow one and the same.
I have (some) understanding of what a miracle is, but will someone please educate me on the other, and the difference between them? Thanx.
The detailed, scientific, evolutionary facts about a woodpecker's tongue is nothing more than tricks? Tricks you write. Scientific data mind you, tricks you say? Nothing more?
Like, I don't know Revolutionary? Extraordinary? Miraculous, maybe?
Magick, in the broadest sense, is any act designed to cause intentional change.
A miracle is an unexpected event attributed to divine intervention.
Magic is pulling bunnies out of hats...
The definitions may be different but they are both Bullsh1t!
Penn & Teller will tell you so!!!
If you would like to be more in tune with nature you would think about nature.
When you are outside you consciously notice the world around you.
After awhile it becomes part of you and you notice things automatically..
That is majick.
just an example
If ya wanta look at a miracle and a questionable evolution/intelegent desigh, look at the way a woodpeckers tongue curls up behind its brain when it is not reaching deep inside a hole that it has just dug in a tree with its face.
Tell me that this bird was doing that until this miracle with its tongue (Cushining its brain)"Just Happened" and evolution took over and prevented further damage to occure to this little birds brain upon being hammered up against a tree.
Magic: People pulling bunnies out of hats, slight of hand tricks, etc.
Magick: Intentional change of any kind.
Miracle: Unexplained solution to a problem happens.
The more I read of your "bullshit" The more I love ya! lol
Penn and Tellers "Bullshit" is GREAT!
The human body is a miracle.
Tantum, can you rebuild a heart to last more than five years?
A spine that bends and turns, and rebuilds itself everyday?
It is not always about foolish beliefs Tantum. Your insults are getting old.
Mark Knowles just wrote this to AquaSilver. Fittingly it applies to you too. Condensending. If we don't agree with Tantum, we must be fools.

You know - condescending."
Yes Tantum, mommy. We all must be foolish children, and you our "mommy."
I wonder when evolution received the label of a 'miracle?'
Miracles defy our physical world, evolution does not.
"Miracles defy our physical world, evolution does not."
Interesting you should say that!!
Abiogenesis, you know, the VERY first advent of life, also defied EVERY KNOWN scientific/physical law we know of. So how can you assert the above styatement?
And yes, miracles DO defy our physical laws, hence the definition.
Example of a miracle:
Meeting a supermodel, having her seduce you, taking you back to her place, and making love to you all night long.
Example of magic
The ability to escape unseen from her bedroom without having your bones broken by her 300 pound bodybuilder boyfriend who just came back early from a trip
Miracles or Magic. What's the difference?
Magic is only a superstition.
Miracles are done naturally but the level of human knowledge has not reached yet to the level to explain them; they are done under special laws of the Creator- God Allah YHWH.
Like Mary giving birth to a child without touching of a man. It is an exception but natural; one in millions.

Explain the difference between Miracles and Magic?If you were to drop from another planet to find a magician crutching razors into needles and Jesus feeding 5000 with five loaves of bread and two fish, whom would you think has more powers, and why?
